Pi Program: 2019-20 School Year

We are pleased to announce that the Pi Program is now accepting applications for the 2019-20 school year. We will be located in the current Chimacum Middle School building, along with Elementary grades 3-6.

We are accepting applications for students in grades K-12, but there are limited places for 11th and 12th graders who have plans to split time between programs.

We are offering classes two days a week for K-8 students, with the expectation that assignments will be worked on at home with parental support for the other three days. (We would like to offer three days of classes for grades 3-8, and that may still be possible if our enrollment supports more staff time). At the High School level we will offer a wide range of courses, with classes meeting between 1 and 3 times a week.

We look forward to continuing our community partnerships with the Community Boat Project and with the Pi String Orchestra.

Application forms are available at the CMS office, and the district office. Come and join us!
